Bottlenecks, isolation, and life at the northern range limit: Peary caribou on Ellesmere Island, Canada
Abstract During his expeditions to the North Pole Robert Peary harvested at least 233 Peary caribou (Rangifer tarandus pearyi) from the northeast (NE) portion of Ellesmere Island, Nunavut, Canada. ToExpand
Peary caribou distribution within the Bathurst Island Complex relative to the boundary proposed for Qausuittuq National Park, Nunavut
How caribou ( Rangifer tarandus ), including Peary caribou ( R. t. pearyi ), use their annual ranges varies with changes in abundance. While fidelity to some seasonal ranges is persistent, use ofExpand
Biotic interactions govern the distribution of coexisting ungulates in the Arctic Archipelago – A case for conservation planning
Abstract Climate change and biodiversity loss underscore the need for conservation planning, even in remote areas. Species distribution models (SDMs) can help identify critical habitat for reserveExpand
Potential net effects of climate change on High Arctic Peary caribou: Lessons from a spatially explicit simulation model
It is anticipated that climate change will have a major impact on High Arctic ecosystems. Peary caribou (Rangifer tarandus pearyi) is a caribou subspecies endemic to the Canadian High Arctic. In theExpand
A stochastic modelling framework to accommodate the inter-annual variability of habitat conditions for Peary caribou (Rangifer tarandus pearyi) populations
A two-pronged approach aiming to characterize year-to-year variability of habitat conditions across the Canadian Arctic Archipelago from 2000 to 2013 is introduced, identifying unaccounted factors that are critical for building an empirical modelling framework with quasi-mechanistic foundation in order to evaluate the impact of climate change on the integrity of Peary caribou populations within any location of theCanadian Arctic.

Can Landsat data detect variations in snow cover within habitats of arctic ungulates?
With climate change, modelling has suggested that increased inaccessibility of forage through snow may endanger some populations of arctic ungulates; however, contemporaneous data on snow-coverExpand

Geographic variation in caribou on the Canadian arctic islands
Analyses of body, leg bone, skull, and pelage data indicated a cline in the characters of caribou from central Boothia Peninsula to the western Queen Elizabeth Islands. Expand
Range shift and winter foraging ecology of a population of Arctic tundra caribou
Some researchers have suggested that over periods of several decades, Arctic tundra caribou (Rangifer tarandus) may be regulated by density-dependent forage depletion. Winter range shifts could pot...
Population Increase of Muskoxen on Banks Island and Implications for Competition with Peary Caribou
Surveys were flown in March 1979 and 1980 north and south of 73 deg. N on Banks Island to estimate numbers of muskoxen. Observed total was 11809 animals and estimated population was 18328 muskoxen,Expand
Lack of Reproduction in Muskoxen and Arctic Hares Caused by Early Winter
A lack of young muskoxen ( Ovibos moschatus ) and arctic hares ( Lepus arcticus ) in the Eureka area of Ellesmere Island, Northwest Territories (now Nunavut), Canada, was observed during summer 1998,Expand
Status of Peary Caribou and Muskox Populations on Bathurst Island, N.W.T., August 1981
An aerial survey of Bathurst Island, Northwest Territories, Canada, was conducted 10-13 August 1981 to determine if Peary caribou ( Rangifer tarandus pearyi ) and muskoxen ( Ovibos moschatus ) hadExpand
Catastrophic Die-Off of Peary Caribou on the Western Queen Elizabeth Islands, Canadian High Arctic
The Peary caribou ( Rangifer tarandus pearyi ) is an endangered species in Canada, having been in an overall decline since 1961. Sightings of Peary caribou were compared from two aerial searches, inExpand
Mass emigration of arctic tundra caribou from a traditional winter range: population dynamics and physical condition.
The results support Inuit observations of declining physical condition of FP caribou in the early 1980's, and then view that the range shift was catised by cumulative annual overgrazing of the winter range during the previous 10 to 30 yr. Expand
Collection and Analysis of Traditional Ecological Knowledge about a Population of Arctic Tundra Caribou
Aboriginal peoples want their ecological knowledge used in the management of wildlife populations. To accomplish this, management agencies will need regional summaries of aboriginal knowledge aboutExpand
Inuit Knowledge of Long-term Changes in a Population of Arctic Tundra Caribou
Indigenous peoples possess knowledge about wildlife that dates back many generations. Inuit observations of historical changes in a caribou population on southern Baffin Island, collected from 43Expand
Population demography of Peary caribou and muskox on Banks Island, N.W.T., 1982-1992
The Peary caribou population (excluding calves) on Banks Island declined from 6 970 (± 1133) in 1982 to 897 (± 151) in 1991. The 1992 estimate was 1 005 (± 133). Percent calves in the populationExpand
